Benefits of an SBA Loan:

  • Favorable interest rates. SBA loans typically offer competitive interest rates, helping businesses lower their overall borrowing costs.
  • Lower down payments. SBA loans often require smaller down payments than traditional loans, making funding more accessible for businesses.
  • Various loan sizes. Whether your business requires a small infusion of capital or substantial financing, SBA loans have varying loan sizes to help you meet your goals.
  • Extended repayment terms. Businesses enjoy more time to repay SBA loans, easing the strain on cash flow.
  • Flexible use of funds. Businesses can use SBA loans for various needs, such as working capital, equipment, expansion or debt refinancing.
  • Government guarantee. The U.S. Small Business Administration partially guarantees the loans, reducing risk for lenders. This encourages lenders to extend financing to small businesses that may face challenges securing conventional loans.

Do You Qualify for an SBA Loan?

The answer lies in key criteria set by the U.S. Small Business Administration. To qualify, your business must be for-profit, owned and operated in the U.S., and meet specific employee and net worth thresholds.
